New chairs appointed to DCMI Communities and Task Groups

Monday, December 18, 2006

While many of the Working Groups chairs are continuing their work as DCMI Community moderators or DCMI Task Group leaders, there have been a number of changes. New Community Moderators are: Ann Apps (DCMI Collection Description Community), Raju Buddharaju (DCMI Preservation Community), Sarah Currier (DCMI Education Community), Matthias Menger (DCMI Environment Community), and Jon Phipps and Emma Tonkin (DCMI Registry Community). New Task Group Leaders are: Muriel Foulonneau and Sarah L. Shreeves (DCMI Collection Description Application Profile Task Group), and Hans Overbeek (DCMI Government Application Profile Task Group). These people have also become members of the DCMI Advisory Board. Pete Johnston (Collection Description), Eric Childress (Date), Stuart Sutton (Education), Sarah Rice (Global Corporate Circle), Heike Neuroth and John Kunze (Preservation) and Rachel Heery (Registry) have stepped down as chairs. The DCMI Directorate thanks the retiring chairs for their efforts in furthering the work of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative and wishes the new Community Moderators and Task Group Leaders success in their new responsibilities.
